A prototype of Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando for the PlayStation 2.

Notes

  • An NTSC preview build from a couple of months before the final game.
  • A patch is required to bypass the dongle protection. Use the xdelta patch provided.
  • Some graphical glitching is seen in PCSX2 unless played in software mode (press f9).
  • The game starts with an intro video.
  • There is no title screen. Instead, skipping the video takes you straight to the main menu.
  • The main menu says "Alpha/Preview Disk"[sic] at the bottom of the screen.
  • The main menu options are only to start a new game, load a game and the options menu, like the final game - however, the options menu only gives you the ability to change the language.
  • The first cutscene is missing a lot of its sound effects and its music.
  • The cutscene shown before entering Planet Aranos plays its spaceship sound effects, but there's no spaceship present.
  • The following is output to the console during startup, perhaps suggesting a slightly earlier build date than what the files point to:
Insomniac special versionv (3) (built Jul 30 2003 at 16:29:26)
  • Miscellaneous Notes:
    • Game is emulatable (in PCSX2): Issues (as of March 17, 2021).
    • Game contains dongle protection: Patched.
